Richard "Harry" Dey
December 29, 2016

Richard "Harry" Dey, succumbed to natural causes at age 76 on December 29, 2016. Originally from Wellesley, MA, Harry was valedictorian of the 1958 class of Thompson Academy.

He was an independent secretary to many Boston law firms and banks. A founder of IHI, he was a passionate homophilicist and advocate for gay essentialists worldwide.

Harry's erudition and gift for engaging people earned him many friends and admirers, just as his strongly held positions on social issues drew some adversaries.

He leaves no immediate family, but three half-brothers and one half-sister.

His ashes will be laid to rest with those of his beloved dog Xeek (d. 1980), in a ceremony to be announced at a later date.
